BOOK II-Witches,Vampires and Demons-Part 2 Vampires ~ Buffy Russell

In this section of my blog we have moved on to VAMPIRES!!  Who can resist the classic romantic vampire?  The impeccably dressed, youthful, gorgeous gentleman (or woman) with the hypnotizing stare from across the crowded room.  The stare that seems to call to you, entice you and whisk away all other thoughts other than them to draw you in.  The promises to make you youthful and the gift of immortality….

CUT!!!!!  ALRIGHT PEOPLE LET’S BREAK IT UP ON THE SET!!!  LET’S BACK UP THAT IMAGINATION JUST A LIIIIIITTTLLEE BIT THERE SCOOTER!!…..
Alright people, we have all seen the movies… ya know… Interview with a Vampire, Vampire Diaries, Twilight, (and NO girls,,, I’ll let you in on a little secret… THEY DON’T SPARKLE!  SORRY) Bram Stoker’s Dracula and even Nosferatu.  We’ve all seen the actors… Brad Pitt, Tom Cruz, Ian Summerhalter (Hubba Hubba,,, even though I’m pretty sure I’m old enough to be his mother.. Look, a girl can dream ok) If you are old enough to remember, Bella Lugosi and Lon Chaney.
Again, these tales and that is just what they are,,, have been soo diluted with romance and added filler that we have definitely gotten as far away as possible from the true “LEGEND” of the VAMPIRE and DRACULA!!
It all started in 1922 when a gentleman by the name of F.W. Manau made the first film about the legend of the vampire and Dracula called Nosferatu.  It was an actual silent film.  Yes, it was made before they could figure out how to add sound to moving pictures.  You would sit in a theater and watch a screen with someone at a piano who added the music to the movie.

Sooo where did they actually get the ideas to make these movies??  From a mixture of Legend and Truth…  Where did they come up with the legend of the Vampire and Dracula??  TRUTH… From Romania.  The Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania, Romania to be exact.  Where the scariest forests and the most dangerous mountain terrains in the world are.  Each ethnic background has their tales of the dark forests and superstitions to tell children to listen to their parents and not wander too far from home.  But this story has more truth then tale.  With a mixture of what the Romanians call a Stirgoi (Pronounced Stir-goy)

It all started in the 15th century with a Romanian prince and princess who gave birth to a son in the small town of Sighisoara (Pronounced Zigishwara) outside of Transylvania, Romania.  Their son shall be named Vlad Dracolhata.  Later shortened to Dracol (pronounced Drakool).  There is some discrepancy as to the translation of Dracol in Romanian to either mean Dragon or Devil.  We do know that his families crest was the dragon.  Thus known as the house of the dragon.  Vlad’s father gained control of the city of Wallachia and ruled for quite some time.  However, his father was assonated in 1447 by an enemy clan.
For his safety, Vlad escaped to the north to Transylvania but vowed to avenge his father’s death and to take control of what was rightfully his.  He ran to one of his family’s homes, a castle called Brahn Castle high in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania.  While there, he finished building the empire that his father envisioned and amassed an army that for the most part, would remain loyal to the House of the Dragon. Vlad also continued the construction of his father’s dream castle which became known as the most fortified castle in the world.
This castle was built with specific floor plans that in most places, had walls of stone build between 5-10 feet thick, a mote that was 12 feet deep and Bastions on all four corners that were built so high, it gave him a 360 degree panoramic view of his kingdom including the woods and neighboring countries.
I know, I know,,,, you are about to fall asleep with this history lesson and want to know where does “THE IMPALER” part come in and what about the vampires!!?  Well, now, we have to get through some history first.  So here it comes…

When Vlad was prepared to take over where his father left off with ruling his part of Romania, we must remember that at this time in history, there was a HUGE civil unrest in the country and the country was basically being sacked by a neighboring country every other week.  But his number one enemy???  THE TURKS!!  He would set out to deliver a reign of terror on anyone who tried to invade his walls and his people.  He was said to be so hell bent on avenging his father that he was psychotic in his ways of war.  You asked where “THE IMPALER” part comes in?  Well here it is… Vlad was said to be sooo crazy and psychotic that he was said to relish in capturing his enemies and delivering diabolical means of torture such as boiling, disemboweling his victims, skinning them while still alive, cutting off noses and saving them as trophies, to his favorite torture of all,,, IMPALING!!!
Vlad fed his compulsion of sending messages to all who tried to sack his cities by impaling his victims on pikes while they screamed in horror and posting their bodies to die and rot in a line on all roads leading to his kingdom, as said message and a lesson of exactly what they would receive if attempted.  There is evidence of him dining Al Fresco in his torture yard.  His meal consisted of the entrails of his tortured victims served rare and their blood mixed with his wine.  Oh, but he was not all merciless.. He did show mercy to a lucky few after he was done torturing them.  Those that he showed “Mercy” to, were sent out in the Carpathian Mountains naked with no food, to find their way back from whence they came, and to send a tale of the reception that his would be sackers would receive.  He was not so totally cruel though… late in the 1450’s-1460’s , he did make pacts with the Ottoman Empire to not completely control them but to have a huge hand in it..
Here comes the real scary part…. You would think that the Transylvanian people would fear the CRAP OUTTA THIS MAN!!  Oh, contraire!!  THEY FREAKIN LOVED THE MAN!!!  THEY PRAISED HIM UP AND DOWN…THEY HAD FESTIVALS IN HIS HONOR!!!  HE WAS THE MOST REVEARED MAN IN CHRISTIANDOM!!
You know why??  Because he successfully kept his city and his townspeople from every getting attacked and overthrown!!

Here is the real “NAIL IN THE COFFIN” pun totally intended… The whole “Vampire not liking sunlight thing,” because he strategically sacked cities at night under the cover of darkness while most slept so that they never saw it coming… and in 1476, Vlad The Impaler Dracol, met an untimely fate when a small band of rebels got through the city walls and killed Vlad with a stake through the heart!!

As far as the whole “Fangy” Thing,,, That is a legend called a Stirgoi.  Still today, along the country sides of Romania, which are BEAUTIFUL by the way, there is still today, stories and superstitions spun of The Stirgoi.  Stirgoi in Romanian, loosely translates to Undead Witch.  The legend goes that a Stirgoi can be anyone in a village who is thought to be a witch who hexes people, spreads bad luck, the old lonely woman or man that no one goes near in the village or someone who commits suicide.  The Stirgoi is known to be able to shape shift into any animal but most like to shift into a winged and fanged black night flyer.  They do not drink blood but possess the living and drink their energy until they are dead and become a stirgoi themselves.
It is also believed since most of the Romanian people are Orthodox Christians, that if you commit suicide, you soul can no longer go to heaven and it is damned to walk the earth as a stirgoi.  After a person dies, if the village is plagued by bad luck, bad dreams, stolen children, it is believed that the last person who died in the village is a Stirgoi and it is up to the village elders to take care of this beast.
To do this, they must go to the graveyard in the middle of the night, dig up the body, disembowel it, remove the blood, cook it in sacred herbs such as sweet basil, rosemary and lavender, eat it, chop quarter the body, stuff the chest cavity with more herbs, stake the heart with a wooden stake, and rebury the separate parts in separate areas.  This will ensure that the stirgoi is DEAD DEAD!! Never to come back to bother the village again.  See the similarities of the two combined?  And YES there are still small villages scattered all over Romania that still practice the fending off of the Stirgoi!

As far as the whole movie sucking blood and using garlic to fend off the fanged one,,, Garlic has no effect on these things in fact, Romanians LOVE GARLIC… It’s like Frank’s Red Hot there… They put that BLEEEEP, on EVERYTHAAANG.  As for the crosses, holy water and stakes, who knows… Since the majority of the population is still Orthodox Christian, it may work.

That is all for the blog today my Pretties!! Stay tuned for next week’s RIVETING blog… The last part in this blog (BOOK LOL) DEMONS!!  OH MY!!!

BOOK II-Witches, Vampires and Demons-Part 1 The Witch ~ Buffy Russell

Today I would like to talk about how main stream movies and media have portrayed cults, religions, the other side, manifestations, and the TRUTH!!  I would also like to touch on Fantasy vs. Reality.  It has become for commonplace in past years that movie makers have been romanticizing certain aspects of what they label as “CULTS” or “THE OCCULT” especially witches and vampires.  Shows like Charmed, The Vampire Diaries and movies like The Craft, Interview with A Vampire.  Do they make good ratings and rake in the big bucks for all involved??  YES!!! Are they chocked full of romance, starry eyed teens or hot babes and drama/action???  YES!!!  Is ANY of it real???  NOOOOO!!!  I can see that most people’s joy of reading this has come to a screeching HALT!!  Sorry to have burst your bubbles my pretties but I have to put it out there.

Oh come on!!  I’m human too (although some would tend to disagree..MUGGLES) I watched those shows and got caught up in the romance of things just like you and everyone else.  Heck, I too spent almost what seemed my weight in cash standing out in the cold lines to be one of the first at midnight to see Interview with a Vampire.  I mean come on,, Who could resist seeing Brad Pit and Tom Cruz in all there Victorian loveliness???  I still get excited to catch a rerun of Charmed.  Bottom line is that producers and directors add romance and myth to these creatures, beings and religions (NO NOT CULTS! and I will teach you the difference) to captivate a wide range of fan bases so that they make more money.  Sure they MAY add a sprinkling of truth here and there but it’s basically for conversation.

This in turn causes a HUGE interest especially with teens and young adults to delve into the Occult and start “PRACTICING” their brains out without knowing the first thing about witchcraft and the branches of.  So this causes them to run to their internet and start googling things about witches, vampires, demons, majick (yes spelled correctly) casting, conjuring and the like.  The problem with these sights like WIKAPEDIA (which I can’t stand) is that ANYONE without knowledge of any of what they are writing, can post anything without having a speck of truth or education in it.  So it’s what I call Forrest Gumpin It!!   Because witchcraft and the Occult on the internet is like a box of chocolates…. Ya never know what you’re gonna get!  Let me be the first to tell you that the internet is no place to find religion.  There has been a mass exodus towards the Wiccan religion because of these movies that makes it sound cool to be a witch and that all witches are badasses cuz they can do all kinds of things like levitate, put curses and hexes on people they don’t like, make Jimmy fall madly in love with me, I can cause great Aunt Ethel the millionairess to drop dead at the dinner table and leave all her money to me.. WOO HOO!!!
UHHHHH,, WRONG!!!  BACK UP THERE SCOOTER!!!  Do you honestly think that if I had the power to shoot lightning outta my hands, levitate, and all that other hyped crap, that I would still be doing my menial ( and I do mean MENIAL) 9to5er…. HELLS TO THE NAAAAWW!! All this romancing the culture makes wannabe’s run to the internet and start printing of spells of all kinds without knowing where or who they came from.  They don’t know whether it’s white majick, black majick, or gray.. They go to their local occult shop who will sell anything to anyone including selling their own grandma to make a buck, not teach them anything or ask them what they plan on doing with it, and then let them out into the streets like a loose cannon!!  And then when that happen’s… WE get called to clean up the mess.. Deliver the people your horseplay and shenanigans have brought forth by accident, send back the unwanted ghosts and living entities to put them back to rest(where they wanted to be in the first place) and close the portals and vortexes that you guys have opened.  And most importantly physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually hurting someone FOR REAL!!
You can’t go willy nilly practicing majick. Playing with OUIJA BOARDS!!!! A BIG,,, I REPEAT A BIG NO NO!!  DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE…Without knowing what you are doing, you may be wanting to contact Great Aunt Bertha but you have opened a door to another realm of existence that will let EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING IN!!  You will get what you did not want and when you run scared and through the board away,,, you’ve left the door wide open.. It’s like leaving your door open with a sign on it that says “Burglars and Thieves Welcomed, take whatever you want!!”  The biggest problem, is that they don’t want to leave because they have found new toys to play (TORMENT) with…YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND PETS
Which begs the question, can anyone practice majick??  YES!  But to REALLY know your stuff, I believe that you have to be of generational witchery…. A blood line is that special spark inside someone’s genetic makeup.  You also have to practice consciously for YEARS and learn from someone who is well seasoned to teach you the right way… With a teaching in the laws of cause and effect.  That is why a good Wiccan will abide by the laws of 3… EVER MIND THE LAW OF THREE THREE TIMES YOUR ACTS COME BACK TO THEE… THIS LESSON WELL THOUST MUST LEARN…THOUST ONLY GETS WHAT THEE DOST EARN IN RETURN!!!!  Basically saying if you do something bad with the gifts you were given or learned… It will come back to you bad three times or three times worse… Everything must be kept in balance… the laws of Karma!!  It’s like because I saw someone build an atom bomb on youtube, does that automatically make you a nuclear rocket scientist and you can google how to make it and it will work???  NOOO!!   But there are all kinds of witches and those who are willing to make potions and will attest that they can make your wildest dreams come true or make poor old Billy fall in love with you are either just out to make a quick buck or they just don’t care about what happens afterwards.  And that is a shame because those are the self- proclaimed people that will send us back 350 years, back to the times where a person could not sneeze in the wrong direction of a catholic church and not be proclaimed as a witch or heal a sick person with natural herbs, or help a dying person ease their pain so that when the vail broke, and it was time to go, their transition was painless.  They were tortured by the church into submission.  Ridiculed, embarrassed and shamed in front of their community and elders which once went to them for help and trusted them Professing that they did something wrong when they hadn’t done anything at all… all to stop the pain and maybe have some mercy, which most of the time they were killed anyway
Let’s get out selves straight for a moment and chew on the reality of the witch shall we….

Let’s start with the Witch in this multi part blog…
The term “Witch” started off many, many centuries ago in Europe.  It was NOT used as a slanderous name to call anyone… for the origins of the word WITCH and Wicca who the name is synonymous for, I refer to the definition that I think best explains it given by Doreen Valiente from the PAGAN LIBRARY… and her definition goes thusly…
there is an older derivation of the word witch that may perhaps be worthy of consideration. This may be found in A Concise Etymological Dictionary of the English Language by the Rev. Walter W Skeat (Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1901). This book discusses the above-mentioned derivations from wicca, wicce, etc., and then in turn connects these old words with the Norwegian vikja, which means firstly ‘to turn aside’ and secondly ‘to conjure away’. Thus, speculates the Rev. Skeat, the word witch possibly meant ‘averter’.
He Professor Jeffrey Russell,  also mentions that the Anglo-Saxon word witega, a prophet or seer, comes from the Anglo-Saxon witan, to observe, which he says is ‘cognate with witan, to know.’. We have seen that Lewis Spence regarded witega as the origin of wicca. So who is right? In spite of all claims, it seems to me that it remains a matter of opinion. One thing we do know is that the word came to Britain with the Saxons, who at the time of their arrival on these shores were pagans. I believe that to them, the word witch (or whichever of its forerunners they used), did not necessarily have any derogatory meaning. A witch was a seer, a knower, an averter of evil. The word only took on a negative meaning with the coming of Christianity, which taught that all the gods of the heathen were devils. So anyone who clung o the old ways and the Old Religion was a devil worshipper. And annually, around Halloween, we still see the same old charges being made in the same old spirit of bigotry. Isn’t it sad that these good folk haven’t learnt anything since the Dark Ages?

Yes, sad indeed.  We do know that these “Witches” men and women alike, were revered in their communities as medicine men/women.  Those with knowledge by practice that could mix herbs, teas, and tinctures to help the sick get better… A lot of the women were midwives who saved a birthed child or sometimes the mother and child from death with crude cesarean sections the likes that their so called “Modern Medicine” had never seen… Those who with the help of being born vibrationally more attuned to higher levels of consciousness could talk to the spirits.  But once the Christian church came about, in efforts to convert more people to God, they machinated stories that these people danced with the “DEVIL” sold their souls to him in order to have “MAJICKAL” powers, that they would snatch people out of their slumber in order to sacrifice them to the damned one to stay in his good graces.

Now look, before you go on to say that I am bashing Christians, please hear me out,,, I have family members who are Staunch Roman Catholics… I have friends that are Christians,,,I have friends of all religious beliefs and I dig them all… I believe whatever floats your boat and makes you comfortable, and makes your soul sing, is what you should practice.  I’m just trying to educate you with a little history lesion.  So where did I leave off??
Ahhhh Yes… So when the Christian or Catholic church started recruiting or converting, they basically told people that we were evil and that we should be converted or punished… They told people that these creatures(Anybody who wasn’t Christian.. aka PAGANS) should be smote from the face of the earth and if they did so, that God would grant them a place in eternal bliss.  Thus started the witch hunts in Europe.. YESSS the witch hunts originally did not start on the colonial soil that we now call the good o’l USA… in 1692.. They started much earlier in Europe with the evolution of the Catholic church and then spread to the colonies.  This machination of the Higher ups in the newly formed Catholic church caused fear in the hearts of everyone.  Spinning tails that we as witches (pagans) danced with the devil, stole children out of their beds to eat them, rode on brooms, levitated, could transport ourselves into the fireplaces of homes of innocent victims… Those ideals are RUBBISH!!!

Look, I’m not stopping you from practicing black white, or indifferent majick.  What I’m begging you to do is to honor the ways of the ancestors that came before you and practiced.  Don’t get starry eyed… and blinded by what is on the screen… Majick is VERY REAL!!!  LEARN FROM SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND HAS BEEN PRACTICING FOR YEARS!!  LEARN THE RULES OF NATURE AND HOW MAJICK WORKS WITH NATURE.. Whatever majick you practice comes with a price to be paid… think before you do and be willing to accept the consequences that come with it

Bottom line….. And this is sooo true and YES it comes from my favorite movie of witchery all times… OK, OK,, SO SUE ME….

YOU CANNOT PRACTICE MAJICK WHILE YOU STARE DOWN YOUR NOSE AT IT~~ Aunt Jett—PRACTICAL MAGIC!!

Follow the rules and do it for RIGHT reasons and PURITY of heart, and maybe you won’t have to see ME knocking on your door, to clean up YOUR MESS!!!
And so concludes my blog(BOOK II) part 1 of WITCHES, VAMPIRES AND DEMON’S OH MY..PLAYING WITH FIRE!!

BOOK I – Empaths and Indigo Children ~ Buffy Russell

I really want to tie in with what we posted about Indigo children and kind of further delve into that which we call INDIGO, STAR CHILDREN or RAINBOW CHILDREN so I have sometimes heard them called… These names are specific to children who are born with certain gifts or abilities as we sometimes like to call them.  Sometimes these gifts are generational (passed down from generation to generation) or they just happen by happenstance.  They just naturally occur in nature.  However these things happen, these abilities are gifts and should be treated as such, whether you believe that they came from God, Krishna, Shiva, Giresh, Buddah, The God and Goddess, Thor, Odin or what have you.

I would specifically like to touch on EMPATHS which I am and so is my youngest daughter.  I would like to clear the air from a lot of questions I get when I say that I am an Empath.  Such things as What does that Mean?  Where did you get that gift, Can you train someone to be an Empath, do you feel uncomfortable telling people, Show me that you are.

Let’s start by the definition of “EMPATH”  We as humans put on this plane of existence called EARTH, are carbon based beings as told to us  by science.. we have electrical systems all throughout our bodies that control specific functions like our brains, our hearts, our nervous system.  Even though we cannot see them firing electrical impulses, if we went to the specific doctors that are masters at each of these organs, they could hook us up to a machine and we could see the electrical impulses shooting off.  Well, our bodies are surrounded by an electrical force field.  Some people call this field your Aura and that it emits a color corresponding to your mood.  Some people call it a vibe.  These “VIBES” emit an electrical impulse through the atmosphere…  Makes me realize that the gurus of the 60’s were not so far off when they said that they dug your vibe.  Empaths have a special thing with their electrical force field,, that is that it works at a higher frequency than the average person which makes them very sensitive to and able to connect with emotional vibrations in the atmosphere. As empaths, our bodies take on the invisible energies in a room or off of someone until our “INNER JAR” overflows and we take on those emotions and react without anybody doing anything or saying anything to us.

Does this mean we can get vibes off of inanimate objects???  YES!!  from the last person who touched it. How does one who is an Empath deal with the outside??  This is a very touchy subject for those who are super or “HYPER” sensitive to the outside vibrations.  The outside world can be a very scary place for us.  Especially those who can not know how to shield themselves or know how to ground themselves.  A lot of us end up with Agoraphobia, or fear of the outside world.  A bunch of us get diagnosed with severe anxiety, depression, autism, emotional dysfunction, insomnia and a bunch of other emotional issue.  Does this mean we have all of them??  NO!  Does this mean we have some of these very real disorders, YES!!  Most of us do suffer from some of these issues because we were not taught how to deal with the overload of emotions coming at us all at one time so we thing that going nuts or shutting down TOTALLY from the outside world is the only way we can survive.  The body and the brain going into essential survival mode.  Certain places are a definite NO GO for those starting out and super super sensitive like MALLS, STADIUMS, CONCERT HALLS, PARADES, ELEVATORS, and even over crowded schools.  These are places that are super crowded and are just a typhoon or a tsunami of emotions coming at you at one time!!  At these moments, the last things we need to hear are that we are crazy, you need meds or we understand!!  NO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND!!  The more apt thing to say would be… I don’t know what you are going through but I’m here for you if and when you need me… No judgments….Look, I’m 43 years old and I STILL sometimes have to shut myself off from the world to recoup!!

Is this gift tough??  Is it a curse or a gift??   YES this gift is tough. I don’t know of any empath that has not questioned WHY ME!!  Is it a gift or a curse???  BOTH!  Just try and slip into our shoes for one day and you would then see why I say both.

IS there anything to help with the overload??  Yes and No!!  Look, I’ve been doing this for almost 40 years now and I have yet to meet a doctor or a clinic that accepts our gifts for real and has scientific based “Treatment” for people like us.  I didn’t have anyone to help me..in fact my one parent thought I was crazy and needed “HELP”  I have however after 40 years of “WINGING” it come up with techniques that help me to be able to have a job and function as a normal part of society.. WEeeeellll, ALMOST normal haa haa haa… I find that daily meditation and putting up my shields, helps me on a daily basis.. Do I still get overloaded,, YES sometimes.  But that is just life.  That is why I council people who are first finding out that they have a gift and children who are finding life just on a hormone level tough… I believe that this was my purpose in life… to share my gift and my techniques and helping people.  When I see a child who was once cut off from the world, blossom into their own… THAT IS MY PAYMENT from the gods.  I am very lucky to have fallen into a space with Spirit Of The Sword Paranormal at just the right time… Yvonne would call it Synchronicity!!  And yes I do believe it was.  Listen, each of us is given GIFTS abate that mine and a multitude of others like me got gifts that are a little off the beaten path,,, Do not dispair… We are not the “WEIRDOS” the “NORMIES” or normal people are the “WEIRDOS” We are given these gifts for a specific purpose and the gods have given us the duty of finding out what they are for and what purpose they have..

In closing, I know I wrote a book instead of a blog.. So sue me.. I would like to leave you with the last question I get a lot of….. ARE YOU GUYS ALL THE SAME???  NO WE ARE NOT!! believe it or not,,,, there are several KINDS of empaths and here is the list with the definitions and YES you can have any combination there of…

The 10 Types of Empaths – Which One Are You?

Ladies and gentlemen, if you suspect that you are more sensitive than the people around you, then continue reading to find out if you too are an empath in an insensitive world. If you really are an empath, you will recognize some of these experiences that are faced by most empaths:
You tend to absorb other people’s feelings and emotions and experience them as your own
You consistently feel mental and physical fatigue
Your emotional state tends to swing throughout a day based on external stimuli
If someone close to you is in physical pain, you can feel their pain in your own body
You cherish solitude, which helps you refresh and recharge
People prefer to come to you with their problems
You simply cannot bear violence or cruelty
You are naturally caring and nurturing
You are an excellent listener
Your awareness of our physical environment is greater than normal, e.g. your sense of taste, smell, hearing, touch, etc.

Crowded places tend to overwhelm and drain you
Animals and children seem to be attracted to you
Different Types of Empaths – Which One Are You?
Yes, as we mentioned before – being an empath can have many benefits! But, at the same time, it can also weigh you down and cause anxiety. This is one of the reasons why it is important to understand our individual experiences in the hope to better understand ourselves. The following is a list of different types of empaths and a small description to help you understand what kind of an empath you may be.

1. Physically Receptive Empath…

Many empaths seem to be receptive to the physical pains and illnesses of other people. The pain can manifest in the empath’s own body – an ability which has proven to be extremely useful in healing.

2. Emotionally Receptive Empath…

Almost all empaths are extremely receptive of external emotional states. This can result in physically and emotionally feeling other people’s emotions before they are expressed.

3. Claircognizant Empath…

Claircognizant empaths have the ability to know if something needs to be done or if a statement of a person’s intentions is true or misleading, without any rational reasoning. Such empaths have the ability to know if they should do something or not.

4. Geomantic Empaths…

These empaths have the ability to read signals and energy transmitted from the soil or earth. Meaning, they can feel if a natural disaster is impending.
5. Fanna Empath…

Fanna empaths can feel, hear, and interact with animals.

6. Medium Empath…

Medium empaths, as the name suggests, can either feel, see or hear spirits.
7. Flora Empath…

Slightly similar to Fanna Empaths, as they can communicate with plants by being able to feel or receive their signals.

8. Psychometric Empath…

These empaths develop the ability to receive energy, impressions, and information from inanimate objects such as jewelry, photographs, etc.

9. Telepathic Empath…

Telepathic empaths can accurately read another peron’s unexpressed thoughts.

10. Precognitive Empath…

Such empaths can feel a situation or event before its occurrence. These usually manifests in the form of dreams of emotional or physical sensations. In this insensitive and coarse world, empaths can often find it difficult to maintain their inner harmony. But with self-awareness, everyone, including empaths, can learn to appreciate their unique gifts and abilities.

The “True” Exorcist ~Yvonne Allen

Not everyone can be an exorcist.  Demons all know Jesus and they also know the one that has the authority to call them out.  There is no power or magic in the use of the name of Jesus by one that does not know Jesus.

There are many false exorcists.  Why is that?  What makes people think they can cast out evil spirits?  The very same thing that makes witch doctors think they can cast out devils.  Witch doctors can manifest powers that are not physical.  Some of those same witch doctors think their powers are from a good source.  This is part of Satan’s plan to keep confusion going.  The Bible says that a house divided against itself cannot stand.  In no way can that witch doctor cast out an evil spirit because his own power rests in an evil spirit.  The spirit within the host human will cooperate with the spirit in the witch doctor so that, to the physical, it may appear that the spirit has been cast out.  In reality, it could not have been cast out.

Demons within a human can talk through their host.  They don’t have to answer one who does not have authority, but they are compelled to answer one, on demand, who has the authority.  This is an important truth and if you intend to be an exorcist, make certain of your authority; it is a God given gift.

There are those people trying to use the name of Jesus only to find out that the name, itself, holds no magic power.  This is another important truth. There is no magic in the use of the name of Jesus.  This holds true for the real exorcist also.  The use of Jesus’ Name is something we always do, but there is no magic in the use itself.  To say His name releases no magical power.  The power doesn’t come from the use of His name, but by the authority granted to you by Him!  “In the name of Jesus” literally means “by the authority of Jesus”.  The demons know this, and they also know the false exorcists are not telling the truth because they do not have the authority in the name of Jesus.  This is why demons refuse to obey and come out.  They do not have to obey one without authority.

“And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are ye?  And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.”  (Acts 19:13-16)  From this scripture we learn that everyone can not be a “true” exorcist.

 

Demons Forgiven ~Yvonne Allen

I am a deliverance minister/ exorcist. I have the God given gift of discernment and the ability to remove demons from places, objects, and people. The demons know who I am and also know my power. I am not in fear, because the power comes from God. I am God’s vessel. I have respect for them, after all they are fallen angels and are extremely intelligent. They know my intentions are to serve God wholeheartedly.

I have sent many demons back to both Heaven and Hell. This is where the controversy comes in with those who believe this isn’t possible. I can tell you that I have offered demons the chance to go back to God. This comes to me from God. It really throws the demons off when I explain to them that God created all things and forgives us; therefore, he created demons and would forgive them also. He wants back all he created.

The response I get from them isn’t spoken, but seen in the eyes of the victim. I can tell which ones will go back to God before the deliverance is complete. They seem to calm down and leave without much of a fight. When they go, Archangel Michael, Angels, Our Miraculous Mother, The Saints, and/ or Jesus are already there to receive them. You may ask how I witness this miracle?  God has given me the gift of seeing.  I am able to see them go to the place where God intended.

Foundation of Prayer for an Exorcist ~ Yvonne Allen

In every situation dealing with the demonic, one should first establish a solid foundation of prayer. Many deliverers/ exorcists, through no fault of their own, merely repeat the words of prayers in a mechanical way, because they have never learned or experienced anything different. Prayer said against a demon that is not from the heart has little or no effect. A prayer said sincerely, in humility with love and trust in God, is a scourge to the demon. Often, this is effective in a deliverance of a place, or person possessed.

Origin of Saint Patrick’s Breastplate Prayer – Yvonne Allen

Much of what we know of Ireland’s patron saint derives from his Confessio, a document comprising a little over ten thousand words and written in Latin — probably his first language. It is part memoir, part meditation.

In later life he wrote in Irish, his adopted language. the “Luireach Phadraig” may or may not be from his hand, and there are a number of variations in existence. Though commonly known as “St, Patrick’s Breastplate,” “Lorica of St. Patrick” is perhaps a better translation, since the lorica was segmented Roman upper armor offering protection on ALL sides. This would be in keeping with the spirit of this beautiful prayer, of which a new translation is given on the long version of prayer on our Saint Patrick prayer page.

Beast 666 ~ Yvonne Allen

According to the book of Revelation, the end of the world will be heralded by the unleashing of a horrible demon into the world. In one final desperate attempt to reassert himself, the Devil will send a false prophet — The Antichrist — and the Beast 666, a ferocious apocalyptic fallen angel who rises from the sea ridden by the whore of Babylon. Beast 666 is a scarlet-hued monstrosity with the body of a leopard, the feet of a bear, and the jaws of a lion. It has ten horns and seven heads, and spews blasphemy and haughty words from each of its mouths. it will have power over the world for forty-two months. Within that time “dwellers on earth whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to behold the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.” (Revelation 17:8). The beast will lay waste to all around it, visiting plague and destruction on the lives of mankind and defeating the power of the saints. In time, the Beast will be accompanied by the false prophet, or the Antichrist, who will trick people into believing that he is Jesus Christ. He will show brazen images of the Beast, commanding everyone to adore it. He and the beast will brand their followers with the mark 666 on their forehead or hand, and anyone who resists will be slaughtered. The Day of Reckoning will come about in a place called Armageddon. Beast 666, and the legions of evil will do battle with Jesus Christ and his army from Heaven. In the triumph of good and evil, Judgment Day will come and the false prophet and Beast 666 will be captured and hurled into a boiling lake of fire and brimstone. The Devil will be chained and locked in Hell for a term of a thousand years, and all true believers who refused to succumb to Beast will be saved.

EMF and You ~ Jeff Brown

Electromagnetic fields, or EMF for short, have been known to play a role in suspected paranormal activity. EMF occur naturally in the world, but manmade devices create stronger fields that some believe may pose health problems for humans. Electrical fields surround any device that runs current, and an electrical field may be present even when the current is turned off. Humans exposed to high level of EMF have reported a variety of symptoms ranging from headaches, dizziness, and nausea, to anxiety, depression, and fatigue. You may also have a feeling of being watched or just general paranoia or even have hallucinations. Old wiring in basements or attics, refrigerators, microwave ovens, televisions and even clock radios have been known to give off high levels of EMF. Cumulative, long term exposure to EMF is not healthy. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should check for high EMF with a meter specifically designed to detect EMF levels.

The Difference Between Mediums and Psychics ~ Jeff Brown

The terms psychic and medium are used by the general population somewhat interchangeably to describe individuals who are intuitive and who use divination practices or communications with other worldly beings. However, there are clear differences between the two terms.

Mediums
A medium has the ability to communicate with the spirits of the dead. This may be accomplished by channeling, in which the medium acts as a go-between for the other side. While it is believed that all people have some degree of psychic or intuitive ability, mediumship is very rare.

Psychics
A psychic works at an intuitive level. Individuals who are psychic claim to have the ability to perceive information hidden from the normal senses via a “sixth sense” or extrasensory perception. A psychic may be able to foretell the future in many areas–love, money, career, or travel–by using a variety of tools or spiritual channels.

Clairvoyance
A medium may have psychic abilities, but a psychic may not be a medium. Some mediums or psychics also claim to be clairvoyant, meaning they can see the spirits of the dead.

Psychics and mediums work in an altered state of awareness. Psychic abilities can be developed, while becoming a medium cannot–it is purported to be a gift an individual is born with.
